    Good day

    I need some help please. I have created a breakdown report that we use at work to capture our daily tasks.
    I need to find at the end of the week the top 3 breakdowns from this list. Not just the times, but if possible to show me the complete top 3 rows with all the info in it.
    Please contact me and I can send a copy of my workbook to see what I need to do.
